This domestic violence case just got that much more cray.
We reported earlier how Hope Solo pleaded not guilty to both domestic violence charges, which alleged that she had physically attacked her nephew and sister!
Now, the 17-year old nephew in question says that he pulled a gun on her in order to try to keep her from attacking him further, but that the plan didn't work!
According to the boy's account that he told the police, Hope appeared to have been drinking by the time he came over to his Seattle house and was upset that she missed a flight!
Ugh! This is not what scientists mean by a flight or fight response.
The nephew claims that Hope reportedly thought he was talking back to her, and then apparently she told him that he'd never be a professional athlete because he was "too fat and crazy."
After that, the nephew reportedly went into another room with Hope apparently following behind saying that he was "a p**sy" because he called his mom.
At that point the nephew allegedly responded throwing out some expletives of his own:
"I then told her to get her c*nt face out of my house."
Wow, that escalated quickly!
After that, Hope allegedly started her physical attack by grabbing his hair and punching him repeatedly.
The nephew then reportedly went into a back room, grabbed an old, nonworking gun, and pointed it at Hope to stop her from coming at him.
Allegedly, she didn't leave but cornered him "like a shark." Yikes, this sounds terrifying for any teenager to go through this, especially with a family member.
The nephew claims that Hope eventually left the premises as he called the cops, but she allegedly returned and began attacking the nephew's mother. At that point, he allegedly grabbed a broom stick and hit her in the head, but "she kept coming."
Hope's sister, the other alleged victim, claims that the gun was really a BB gun.
We'll report more as this sad and unfortunate story develops.
